Redeveloping Pocahontas Park

Morris Habitat for Humanity has donated time and materials to enhance the Pocahontas Park facility on Speedwell Avenue at Kinney Street at no cost to the Town. There will be three gazebos with picnic tables and two benches over hardscape pavers constructed around the perimeter of the clearing used for soccer games. The intent of the project is to complement the current use of the park by providing these amenities for the benefit of park users and spectators alike. This project comes in as a team effort with support from the New Jersey Healthy Communities Network, the Town of Morristown is working on developing Pocahontas Park into a safe space for the community who live on Tract 435.
Work started at the end of November, the weather has been rough, and it has made it difficult to move along with the construction. Overall, the project is progressing, and the community has reached out to volunteer and help complete the project. So far, the framing of the three gazebos is almost complete. We hope that this part of the project will be ready by the Spring of 2019. We look forward to a productive new year and a new redeveloped park for the community to enjoy.
